Custom car designer and builder Ed "Big Daddy" Roth was a key figure in Southern California's Kustom Kulture and hot-rod movement of the late 1950s and 1960s but as an artist and cartoonist Roth created several extreme characters including Rat Fink.

Rat Fink became and still is a hot-rod icon. Roth originally conceived of Rat Fink as an anti-hero answer to Mickey Mouse. Instantaneously recognizable, Rat Fink is comically grotesque with bulging, bloodshot eyes, an oversized mouth with sharp, narrow teeth, and wears overalls with the initials "R.F." on them. First introduced in the July 1963 issue of Car Craft magazine and the character quickly became popular, so much so that the Revell Model Company issued a plastic model kit of Rat Fink which initially ran from 1963 to 1965, but has along with other charactres created by Roth been re-issued since. Rat Fink’s popularity continues in Hot Rod and Kustom Culture and be found reproduced on t-shirts, toys, decals, and other paraphernalia.
